In order to deal with Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), NZDF requires to replace existing Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) platforms and Neutralisation Systems that enable EOD operators to operate remotely in extremely hazardous situations.

Exact quantities to be procured will depend on the capability offered in tender responses. There will be a requirement for the solutions to replace the current fleet of Mk8 Revolution Wheelbarrow and Packbot UGV’s. To provide sufficient capability to meet required outputs there is a need for the solution(s) to encompass normal domestic EOD operations and Special Operations (SO) domestic operations. It is assessed that the solution(s) will be a mixed fleet of UGV platforms due to differing roles and scenarios.

This RFP will be managed as a multi-LOT process where all respondents will be required to complete the Qualification Envelope. Separate responses may be submitted for the SO UGV and SO Neutralisation Systems as it is desirable for the SO UGV to be capable of firing disruptors, but not essential. Domestic Neutralisation Systems must be capable of being fitted and fired remotely by the Domestic UGV solution(s) and manually, off the UGV platform.

Questions are encouraged and you may request that they are kept confidential providing that they are commercially sensitive. NZDF reserves the right to provide supplementary information to all Tenderers should a confidential question highlight a point requiring clarification to other Tenderers.
